Ronald Reagan's Daughter Calls Out Trump's Assassination Comments
August 12, 2016

Ronald Reagan's daughter Patti Davis let him know exactly what his nasty remarks about "second amendment remedies" meant to her in a Facebook post on Thursday.

"I am the daughter of a man who was shot by someone who got his inspiration from a movie, someone who believed if he killed the President the actress from that movie would notice him," she wrote.

"Your glib and horrifying comment about "Second Amendment people" was heard around the world. It was heard by sane and decent people who shudder at your fondness for verbal violence. It was heard by your supporters, many of whom gleefully and angrily yell, "Lock her up!" at your rallies."

" It was heard by the person sitting alone in a room, locked in his own dark fantasies, who sees unbridled violence as a way to make his mark in the world, and is just looking for ideas," Davis concluded.

"Yes, Mr. Trump, words matter. But then you know that, which makes this all even more horrifying," she added.

John Hinckley, Jr, the man who tried to assassinate President Ronald Reagan to impress actress Jodie Foster, was just released from the mental hospital where he had been serving out his sentence.

Ms. Davis knows of what she speaks.
